Pictures from a Community Garden: Trescony Community Gardens, Santa Cruz

We spent this weekend in Santa Cruz. It is always nice to get away from Sacramento’s heat and be beach side for a little bit. We took many walks and I was impressed with how many houses in Santa Cruz had front yards landscaped with bee-friendly, drought tolerant, and even edible themes. It seemed like every 5th house had a lawn and the rest were beautiful and interesting yards. We stayed at a little cottage that was down the street from a large community garden. The garden had a long path down the middle for cars or trucks to go through with plots on either side. It was huge! I particularly liked one plot’s raised bed which was the shape of two E’s back to back. This was a huge bed but you could reach the middle very easily! Also one plot had the tallest corn I have ever seen. It definitely puts my corn to shame! Take a look at all the things they had going on in this garden!
